That depends on when you want to apply. If it's for this cycle, you need to sign up for the LSAT and get to studying ASAP. If it's for next cycle, start looking into law schools and getting to know their differences and more about their programs. Think about what region you want to study law as this plays a pretty big factor in where you should go (unless, of course, you go to one of the top schools).

If you are an international applicant, you probably want to see if LSAC will translate your degree or whether you need to go through another credentialing organization that can do that for you. Have you taken the TOEFL yet? First, I would check the schools you are interested in to see whether it's required, and if it is, study for that before you take the LSAT. Usually there is a minimum TOEFL that you have to get to be considered for admission, while the LSAT is more flexible. After you finish the TOEFL and get the score you need, then take the LSAT. If there is no LSAT in your area, you can pay extra money to set the test up at a university near you. This takes some time though, so you would need to plan it at least a few months before you want to take the test.

Good luck!

applying spring might be tough because you will be competing for scarce seats that are left at the end of the app season.  also, the LSAT is extremely difficult, so i would plan for the June test now and give yourself some time to prepare for applications next fall (07).  you will be doing yourself a disservice by trying to rush your applications in this year.
